- Critics choice
Much-loved Dalston nightspot The Shacklewell Arms has just announced this tasty-looking new bi-monthly festival. A whole weekend of ace live bands and DJs, plus a record fair, zine swap, poster sale and real ale showcase, Repeater should hit near-illegal levels of fun.
Aussie leftfielder and Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Claudia O'Doherty presents an alternative variety show, hosting line-ups featuring some of her favourite comedy friends. Should be a right laugh.
With £5 from each ticket donated to doing up the Irish Cultural Centre London this St Paddy's day celebration will feature traditional Irish music, DJs, dancing and a complimentary drink on arrival. The boat will remain moored so partygoers can come and go as they please.
- Critics choice
British band Your Demise have decided to break up after ten years of all-out hardcore and punk-metal, but not before they play a series of farewell shows. That means that (barring any future reunions) tonight's gig in Camden will be the last time they're on stage together. Tickets will be snapped up by the faithful, so make sure you grab yours quickly.
Jane Taylor, milliner to the Royals, Liam Fahy, luxury shoe designer and textile designer Claire Anne O'Brein will judge a hat designing competition in aid of Mind Yourself's charity work. The organisation aims to improve the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of the Irish community in London.
